GOP Rep. Appears at White Nationalist Event Where Organizer Calls Capitol Riot 'Awesome'

Source: Daily Beast

A sitting member of Congress appeared at a white nationalist convention Friday night, marking new GOP support for the racist movement. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) spoke in Orlando, Florida, at the America First Political Action conference, a far-right event meant to mimic the establishment Republican Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

After Gosar’s speech, AFPAC organizer Nick Fuentes, who marched in the 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville and was outside the Capitol with his supporters during the Jan. 6 riot, took the podium that warned that “white people are done being bullied.” Fuentes praised the fatal riot as “awesome,” describing it as “light-hearted mischief.” He also mocked Gosar’s colleague, Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), for needing a wheelchair, saying Cawthorn couldn’t “stand up” for his constituents.

“‘I’m gonna take a stand?’” Fuentes said. “How? How are you gonna do that?”

Gosar was joined at the event by former Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who lost his congressional committee seats after defending white nationalism.

1. Mr. Fuentes had best examine his own heritage and square that up with Proud Boys, etc.

4. what is weird, this isn't the first hispanic name id'd with White Supremacists at the Capitol

A number of the individuals arrested and charged as high profile and multiple crimes perpetuated on the Capitol have hispanic last names. It has struck me as very weird, counter intuitive.

It's like they don't understand what What Supremacy is, what it means and who they are. And it's as if the White Supremacists have decided to use these idiots for reinforcements, but it when it's time, they'll be purged and probably violently from the movement that is and will always be White Supremacist.

seriously messed up and stupid.

6. They often consider themselves "white", not realizing that white supremacists don't.

19. It's an interesting phenomenon if not both sad and weird at once.

I recall some discussion on MSNBC, both with Maria Hinohosa and another prominent Latina spokesperson (name escapes my memory at the moment) were discussing the issue of Trump supporters among Latinos throughout the "sun belt" and the southwest.

It seems to be about Macho thing AND the strongly held view that Mexicans coming through the border and enter illegally should not be allowed in this country, they seem to have a visceral dislike for their presence in this country. They also said it's complicated and not completely clear but those two things seem to be dominant.

But that certainly doesn't explain taking membership and allegiance with White Supremacists. I think you're on to what appear to be a bizarre denial about their own ethnicity.

However, this brings to mind my very own half sister who is often mistaken as a Mexican, but is actually half Hawaiian and Caucasian.

She is a Trump supporter, is anti-immigration and speaks about the issue in bigoted manner. Even though she has herself been treated disparagingly by bigots within her church community.

The psychology of this is beyond my abilities, but I feel like it's an issue not to be ignored but better understand. If possible.

I say this notwithstanding that it is impossible for me to understand or view in any way other than pity and in some cases contempt.

Admittedly that remains my own failing.

8. I think these people should be deported

Mitt was right. Remember "self-deportation"? It's time has come.

You don't like it here? Go!

9. So this is what we are up against. They're doubling down on the coup attempt and basically

telling us they will do it again. Are we ready for that?

14. I think we're as ready as we can be.

Now that Biden’s in office, intelligence and DOJ will be on top of any threats. We won’t be caught off guard again, at least when it comes to an organized coup attempt. There certainly could be scattered acts of terror in our future.

10. No this wasn't a "Capitol riot"

It was a seditious insurrection conducted by traitors who need to be dealt with according to the law.

11. If there's another attempt

Dems should shove Fuentes outside before locking the doors*.

I'm pretty sure the MAGA mob won't recognize him. So let's see how "awesome" he thinks it is when they subject him to some of that "light-hearted mischief."

*and not just Fuentes

13. How sick is that??

I just don't understand. This is stuff you hide from your mother. WTF? Who voted for this guy?

"White people are bullied." OMG.

I just don't feel like reaching out to people like this. I'm in favor of playing hard ball with them. I know that Joe and Kamala have to do something along the lines of "working together," but I'm outta there. I see that they are up to no good, and want to trash America.

These people are SICK. People died during that insurrection attempt. People died. They died. It isn't funny! It's not cool! I hope that next time the Guard meets them with lethal weapons. That's how angry I am with them. They thought that was fun? Let's make it NOT FUN for them.

I don't know about you, but I am HORRIFIED with the CPAC fatted Donald statue and the likes of all of that Nazi symbols crap. The GOP has turned into a fricking Nazi Party. The Trump fascists have to be pushed away. Give them nothing. That'll work for me!

And, Biden is working as fast as he can. He's doing okay. He has a good pace, doing well.

Calling on G-d to smite these bozos with permanent clown paint and flapper feet. Let their d*cks fall off. I don't care any more. I don't like them.

16. "White people are bullied." OMG

"Bullied" as in:

Their rightful place as a Superior Race is being denied.

Being treated like law breakers despite White Privilege.

Not given the power and money that is their birthright.

It's a Nazi definition of 'bullied'. Anyone who talks like that is a straight out White Race Uber Alles Mensch.

Where are these Jewish Space Lasers when you need them? Where is the Vengeful smiting of the Ungodly by the Almighty?

15. This entire fustercluck of insurrectionists, white supremacists, religious nutjobs,

and big box of just assorted loons...it's got to be over some time.

I have to admit, when Il Douche announced his campaign, and especially shortly after, once I'd seen his act, I was HOPING he was going to be their nominee. I thought that, not only would he be easy - beyond easy - to beat, it would be very entertaining.

Well, guess what. "Be careful what you wish for" is not an idle little saying. You really have to.

But, in my wildest dreams, I could never have pictured this. Not ever.

17. So, this was the "right-wing alternative" to CPAC?

The CPAC that featured a set with the same giant rune symbol the American National Socialist Party uses on their flags?

If there remain any conservatives with a conscience they must condemn ALL of these Nazis and renounce the Republican party immediately.

If they do not, they should be considered enemies of the United States and the democratic principles that are its bedrock.

18. Twitter on this konklave:






Former GOP Rep. Steve King: "We can restore this country, and we can do it with OUR babies, and we can do it with OUR values! God Bless You All!"

Crowd: "USA! USA! USA!"



At "America First" conference U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona just spoke at, host Nicholas Fuentes says to cheers that if America "loses its white demographic core and if it loses its faith in Jesus Christ, then this is not America any more."



This is how Gosar excused his absence from the House of Representatives so he could speak to a group of white nationalists:

Gosar told the House: “I continue to be unable to physically attend proceedings in the House Chamber due to the ongoing public health emergency."



Rep. Paul Gosar spoke tonight at AFPAC, an event run by white nationalists. Right after Gosar, organizer Nick Fuentes said "white people are done being bullied," and praised the Capitol riot as "awesome."
